    There aren’t many US passerines with a blackish tail contrasting with a greenish body. You’ll figure this one out if you start at the r e a r of the bird, a strategy that usually works better than concentrating on the colors of head and throat.

    Now I’m just grasping at straws, but based on Rick’s hint I’ll guess Yellow-bellied Flycatcher because it’s small and the tail looks right. Hopefully someone smarter than me will check in with the right answer.
